Atsu To Become First Summer Signing

Atsu To Become First Summer Signing

Can just imagine it now, a worker for Sky TV hears a 'Psssttt!!' coming from the bushes of a park close to Newcastle's training ground.

On exploring where the noise came from, what follows is a conversation between the 'source' and the Sky worker in a bit of gossip regarding a football transfer and the need to keep things a bit hush.

We know it's not like that in reality and more just a bit of stuff handed around social media or via a quick agent phone call or something to give a heads up but I prefer my view.

Anyway, as it happens, Sky Sources on Sky Sports reckon that the Christian Atsu scenario will be resolved with the Ghana international signing here permanently on a 4 year deal.

The fee is reported to be £6.2m and would be Rafa Benitez's first deal of the coming Summer window.

Atsu just finished this season on loan to us from Chelsea, playing in 35 games, scoring 5 goals and providing 3 assists.

If or when it's confirmed, Id expect this to be an announcement that says that he'll sign on July 1st when the transfer window opens.
